This FM 2012 player profile of Mehmet Ekici shows the wonderkids creativity and technical class. While the screenshot above may not show an abundance of improvement, I believe he can progress much farther under human supervision and care. Either way he’d make a nice edition for any top 6 EPL side and grow to be capable of making any starting XI in the World. The £8.5 million asking price is very fair but his lack of development in dribbling holds my rating below at 8, if you can get his dribbling attribute up then you’ll have a very capable advanced playmaker.

Best buy rating: 8/10

Classy player. Saw him develop into a Xabi Alonso/ Pirlo type midfielder with superb vision. In my Arsenal save he won European Midfielder Of The Year 2015 with an average rating of 7.92 with 7 goals and 12 assists. Beating the likes of Gotze, Fabregas and Crisetig(Captain Of Italy at the time). Listed for the World Player of the year as well. Him and Marin lead Bremen to the Champions League and Bundesliga title! Absolutely outstanding player!

Maybe you find a good one in these, i think they are developing well (Idk, coz i looked for them some patches ago…). Even If they doesnt fit in this table, maybe they are some hidden tipps for you/someone else :) They… Read more »

Hi Darren.
This is my first year of getting FM and I have to say you have been a fantastic help. I just have one question about the Arsenal tactic. If I use a player like Yaya or Fierro up front, should I change the role from CF support to poacher and should I change the target man settings? Keep up the excellent work
